Struggling To Get Traffic To My Website

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by boliver228, Aug 18, 2010.

    I recently created a website, the web wealth community. As its only new, it is not yet ranked in the first few pages of google. Because of this, I am struggling to find ways to get traffic, in order for it to move up the ranks. I have tried many forms of marketing including forums and social networking but all it ever seems to gain me is a few useless visitors, and then a month later the traffic dies.

    Please help me get traffic!

    Not too sure your statement "...find ways to get traffic, in order for it to move up the ranks..." You dont need traffic to rank in search engine. The niche you are targeting is rather big, few other things you might consdier doing are article marketing, twitter, Facebook,etc

    You need good content for a good site, keep producing good quality content and the visitors will show up.

    Content is king when it comes to getting ranked. I find that using forums to get people to your social networking site works better. Once they are members or "Friends," then you can post relative content on the social network and butter them up and then send them to your site

    Mastering traffic is the lifeblood of marketing online.

    Look into ..

    Article marketing
    Video marketing
    social bookmarking every post
    Rss submission every post...... often overlooked
    Running a contest... tweeting and facebook work well with this

    Hope this helps.

    For higher ranking in search engines
    Article Marketing (targeting keywords that have high search volume > 2000 monthly, and relatively low competition 75,000 or less)

    For other ways to get traffic
    Forum Marketing
    Newsletters
    Email Signatures
    Classified Ads
    Online Giveaways

    The most direct and effective way is to advertise, or use larger flow of the platform to promote your site

    Try brushing up more on your onsite and off site SEO knowledge. Good quality backlinks are a must too.

    Are you utilizing niche related message boards to drive free targeted traffic to your website? This is really one of the best ways to find people who are already interested in your niche and get your site in front of them. Put the word FREE in whatever it your promoting (if you can) and your CTR and traffic is going to skyrocket.

    thanks everyone i appreciate all the advice, I have started to get a bit more traffic now after trying a few of your techniques. Insomania if you have nothing positive to say, say nothing. That was one of the most unhelpful pieces of advice i have ever received.
